Ilene Frances Meckle, 95, of Honesdale, left this earth to join the Lord on January 28, 2021. She was preceded in death by her husband Frederick J. Meckle in 1988. The couple married on December 26, 1942.

She was born on July 28, 1925 in Pea Brook, NY, the daughter of the late Leo and Lillian (Rose) Schuman.

Ilene had many sayings and a real way about her. She was a gram and mom to everyone she knew. If she knew you liked a certain food, you would receive it on a regular basis.

She helped all of her girls and grandkids. A special lady to say the least.

Surviving are her four daughters, Beverly Gill and Leana Stanton both of Equinunk, Cathy Diehl and husband Brian of Tyler Hill, and Susan Young and husband Jesse of Equinunk. She is also survived by her 17 grandchildren, 45 great grandchildren and 14 great great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her sisters Leah Branning, Grace Kean, and a younger sister Marie Shuman; her sons-in-law Robert Gill, Gerald Lester and Wilson Stanton; her grandsons Randy Gill and Joshua Young.

A special thank you, to her family at Ellen Memorial. The nurses and aides were so special and good to her. Also a special thank you to her great granddaughter Paige Gill for staying by her side right to the end. She loved her Paige for all she did for her.

Private funeral services will be held at the convenience of her family. Interment will be in Pine Mill Cemetery in the spring. Arrangements by Hessling Funeral Home, Inc., 428 Main St. Honesdale.
